Liberals vs. Free Speech

City Journal takes a look at liberal efforts to suppress speech unpopular with them. As the article points out, it wasn't always that way:

"Once upon a time, liberals pushed free speech at every opportunity.But now liberals want to empower the government to put people behind bars for advancing political ideas, come election time."

The writer takes some time in looking at the Supreme Court's Citizens United decision, one that has liberals fuming. That's the one that ruled businesses have the same rights to political activity and speech as do individuals.

As an aside, I received an e-mail a short time ago from saying their fundraising effort to overturn Citizen's United failed. I'm delighted!

Local conservatives and liberals on blogs pull the same speech supression too........small town politics.

My have times changed regarding "free speech".

It truly is about exclusion of those whose opinions, facts, ideas, etc.... are not desired because it reveals something that incriminates or highlites those topics of discussion which are misrepresented or exaggerative, etc.

Their first example of liberals hating free speech is a court case that is premised on the idea that corporations are human beings.

So, yeah, liberals support free speech for real, living, breathing human beings. That hasn't changed. Liberals have never supported the idea that corporations are human beings.

*eye roll*

HOJ agrees that corporations are not people too, but an abstract of liability laws to protect the wealth created by the elite types who use a veil of politics to shield the elites from paying fair share of taxes or paying employees better or lowering consumer prices..........all of which helps lower the costs of living.

It is true as fact some corporations are making its employees part owners. This lowers "company costs" relative to workers compensation and labor laws, while providing funding for company provided healthcare plans.

What liberals do, like proggies and conservatives, is censor the meaningful speech because it exposes a myriad of frauds, deceit, corruprion, etc....

It is so bad now, that political tactics by bureaucrats has been plagiarized by local community grassroots bullshitters, especially on blogs where free speech and expression are attacked, censored, and quite frankly, not desireable by those piece of shit mother fucker locals who have ulterior motives to get what they want at no matter what cost or how much deception.

We truly are living in DECEPTIVELY SAD TIMES.
